Children honor St. Martin in lantern processions

Children honor St. Martin in lantern processions

by Petra Lessoing
86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Saturday is St. Martin’s Day. Traditionally, children and parents will walk in lantern processions to honor St. Martin, the patron of the poor and friend of children. In Kaiserslautern, Ramstein, Landstuhl and other villages of the KMC, parishes and kindergartens organize lantern processions where children carry lanterns, which they created in kindergarten or school, and sing Martin songs. Usually the walk starts at a church and goes to a public square. A man on horseback dressed like a Roman soldier and representing Saint Martin, accompanies the children. When they reach the square, they will begin the Martin’s play, the bonfire is lit and Martin’s pretzels are distributed.
